LEVELLAND – South Plains College will host the 32nd Annual Camp Bluegrass Sunday through Friday (July 15-20). The camp will feature the music of the Kentucky Colonels.

Among the special guests expected to appear will be Roland White, a recent inductee into the Bluegrass Hall of Fame. He played in the Kentucky Colonels with his brother, Clarence White. Also, Becky Buller will perform. In 2016, Buller made bluegrass music history by becoming the first person to win in both instrumental and vocal categories at the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) awards.

More than 113 patrons have signed up to attend the musical camp including musicians from Australia and Canada. A special Thursday night concert honoring the music of the Kentucky Colonels will be the highlight of the camp.

This six-day residential camp attracts bluegrass musicians from across the nation. Campers stay in residence halls on campus as well as conveniently located RV sites with food service provided in the SPC Cafeteria. Motels also are available in town.

The camp is designed to improve individual skills of banjo, guitar and mandolin players. Also, classes will be provided for fiddle, Dobro, bass and vocals. Emphasis is placed on perfecting individual skills and addressing individual musical concerns. Classes are conducted in the Commercial Music building with nightly faculty performances in the Tom T. Hall Production Studio.
